John Knox House

The Date?

Thank you to Jan Weijers, Netherlands for allowing me to reproduce this photo and other old photos of Edinburgh.

The photo above was taken by J Patrick.  Would this have been John Patrick (1830-1923) or his son, James (b.1863)?

-  John Patrick had photographic studios in Edinburgh,1884 to 1888
and possibly later.

-  John Patrick & Son had a studio in Edinburgh from 1890 to 1895.

-  John Patrick & Son had a studio in Edinburgh 1896 to 1912 .

-  James Patrick had studios in Edinburgh, 1895 to 1907.

I've not yet  researched the date of this photo.  Perhaps somebody else will be able to do a little research and let me know what they find.

The View

This view looks to the east towards John Knox house, the house jutting out into the in the High Street in the centre of this photo.

For some reason, the people and probably the cart on the right-hand side of this photo appear to have been added to the photo.  Perhaps that area was thought not to be interesting enough on the original photo.
